Introduction to a dream…
I am learning how to fly. I just had my first official flying lesson (logged that is) in a 1955 SUPERCUB! I’ve had a few hours (not logged) in some other little taildraggers and wouldn’t know what to do with a nose wheel if it goosed me in the A** Hell no!! I’m not CLEAR!!! Please don’t get that thing started NOW!
When I knew that my first time up in the front seat (not JUST the RIGHT seat) would be in a SUPERCUB I started feverously searching for information about this fabulous bird. Before long, I had stumbled into the hallowed corridors of SUPERCUB.ORG and found a veritable treasure-trove of priceless information and shared experiences THEN, I came across the musings of a certain CloudDancer… and before long, say about the first paragraph or so… I just KNEW I was getting into trouble.
By the time I went up for my “maiden” flight, I’d read all of the Chronicles and had been flying in my mind in places far more challenging than I was ever likely to encounter on my first “introductory flight” into the land of sunshine I was so excited upon returning to earth (ink still WET on the first ENTRY into my VIRGINAL logbook) I sort of skidded and blurted out on CloudDancer’s thread discussing a whole ‘nuther “first time” http://www.supercub.org/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=12660
Before I spin completely out of control here, I’m gonna lower my nose and kick some hard rudder and tell you how I got my tail up in the air in the first place. It all starts with a DREAM!Originally Posted by dreamer
